Fantasy football quarterback rankings for Week 16

Christmas and rankings go together like egg and nog. Favorite toy? Time to rank your Tickle-Me Elmos, Furbys and Malibu Barbies. Favorite Christmas song? Silent Night vs. White Christmas vs. Leroy the Redneck Reindeer.

But none of that will win you a fantasy football championship. If you’ve made it this far, you’re possibly ready to move past the Yuletide to the onside kicks. And could care less about where I rate figgy pudding and fruitcake in my Christmas food rankings.

But if some Week 16 fantasy positional rankings would help, here are my QBs, in order. For more personalized advice, leave a comment below, go to consigliere’s specialized thread or leave a comment on our message boards.

    Does anyone know if it matters that Vick is postponed until Tuesday in Yahoo Fantasy?

    @Sam: I can’t say for certain, but the bottom line is that it is a Week 16 game so it has to be considered part of Week 16 for fantasy football.
    I’m not at all concerned about leaving Vick in a couple of my lineups, including one money league.

    @Sam: This is posted at the top of Yahoo league front pages now:

    GAME ALERT: The Vikings VS Eagles game has been postponed until Tuesday, December 28th at 8:00 PM EST. Scoring for this game will still count towards week 16 stats.
